How can I prepare to apply for jobs in advertising?

Here is a fantastic slideshow by young advertising planner at Euro RSCG. I really recommend checking out the resources (blogs and books) that she recommends. Slideshare itself is a tool you should get to know – quick and easy but probably not as eye catching as Trello. The book in the title image is the very first I read to prepare for my applications, very funny and gives a great overview of the different roles within the industry.
